What is the purpose of a pre-employment drug test?
When being considered for a new job, it is not uncommon to be asked to complete a DOT Physical or drug test. Gwinnett Urgent Care wants to ensure that our local businesses are operating safely and efficiently. Some other reasons may include:
- Creates a Safe + Productive Work Environment– Drug testing allows a company to protect itself by ensuring a safe working environment for its employees.
- Reduces Turnover- The U.S. Department of Labor estimates that drug use in the workplace costs employers up to $100 billion dollars annually. This is a reason a large majority of companies require pre-employment drug screening and drug testing.
- Reduces Accidents– Working while under the influence of drugs significantly increases the risk of accidents and injuries while on the job. Performing a pre-employment drug test helps to promote safety for the new hire, as well as other employees. Learn more about our workers' compensation services.
- Increases Productivity– Having a drug-free work environment increases productivity because workers are more focused on their tasks at hand.
